Book Review: The Beekeeper’s Promise

I've been stumbling a little bit this past week or two. My schedule has been a little out of whack, with weekends that I try to keep semi-quiet being busy. It's why there was no catechism post this week and why there will be (hopefully) two next week. Then, my area had a record-breaking snowfall, … Continue reading Book Review: The Beekeeper’s Promise


Book Review: The Last of the Stanfields

I love a good mystery novel. Especially family mysteries. There's something about the layers upon layers that are found in family and historical mysteries that sucks me in and ensures I won't be putting a book down until I'm done with it. The Last of the Stanfields by Marc Levy satisfied my family mystery itch in the … Continue reading Book Review: The Last of the Stanfields

Book Review: We Were Mothers

Another Kindle Unlimited read, We Were Mothers by Katie Sise was about as unexpected as they come. The description on Goodreads does not give it nearly enough justice! However, I did enjoy being very surprised through the twists and turns of this surprisingly dark story. At first glance, We Were Mothers looks like another chic lit novel. A man … Continue reading Book Review: We Were Mothers

Book Review: What Have You Done

At the beginning of January, I reactivated my Kindle Unlimited membership. Amazon Prime had a deal going for it, so I decided it would be a good time to renew. I'll probably deactivate once my deal is up (I use it primarily for audiobooks and I have access to those through my library for free), … Continue reading Book Review: What Have You Done

Book Review: The Good Widow

Another book for 2017 finished! I now have only two more books left before I reach my goal of 52 books this year. It's so close I can almost taste it! This most recent book, The Good Widow by Liz Fenton and Liza Steinke, was quite the read. I went into it expecting a light, seeking-closure kind … Continue reading Book Review: The Good Widow

2018 Goals: Reading

Also known as, The One Where I Talk About My Read Your Bookshelf Challenge. Bookworms come in all shapes and sizes, all interests and intensities. Some of us like sci-fi, others prefer historical fiction, still others prefer biographies or westerns. We are young and old, black and white, obsessive and not-as-obsessive. But I believe that … Continue reading 2018 Goals: Reading

Book Review: Close to Home

I have finished reading the fifth installment in the Tracy Crosswhite series. For now, it is the final installment. There is a sixth book, but it is not due to come out until the summer of 2018. I know, I'm disappointed too. I hate waiting for books to come out - part of the reason … Continue reading Book Review: Close to Home

2017 Reading Challenge: Final Month!

As you may recall, I started out this year attempting to complete the Tim Challies 2017 Reading Challenge. By September, I was sorely behind for numerous very good reasons. So, I revised my goal and created my own challenge: in a realistic world, to read 52 books by the end of the year. And, in … Continue reading 2017 Reading Challenge: Final Month!

Book Review: The Trapped Girl

I have completed another installment in the Tracy Crosswhite series by Robert Dugoni! It's been a while since I've been truly hooked on a book series and I am loving this. Wow, this book. It was twists and turns and unexpected moves from beginning to end! I loved following Tracy as she investigated a mysterious … Continue reading Book Review: The Trapped Girl

Book Review: In the Clearing

The third book in the Tracy Crosswhite Series, In the Clearing by Robert Dugoni takes us between the big city of Seattle and the small town world of Klickitat County, Washington. Throughout this captivating book, Tracy works on two seemingly unrelated murder cases, one fresh and one cold. Dugoni's series continues to captivate me and leave … Continue reading Book Review: In the Clearing
